Ebrima Trawally started this petition to The Gambia Government and the Fisheries Ministry and EU

Please Sign the Petition to Stop the Implementation of the Sustainable Fishing Partnership Agreement that the EU signed with The Republic of The Gambia on October 19, 2018.

This fisheries agreement allows EU vessels (41) to fish Tuna and Hake Species in the Gambian waters with only Pittance coming to the People of The Gambia.
During the debate on the ratification of the Agreement in the National Assembly of The Gambia, one of the National Assembly members, who believed that the Agreement is a crime against The People of The Gambia posited as follows:
“You commit a crime, and you also determine the penalty of that crime. That is why I say it is an indictment. You do not have the capacity to determine that the crime is committed against you and you do not have the capacity to determine the punishment for that crime.
The person committing the crime against you does it deliberately and also determines the punishment for the crime.
50 Euros for a Ton of Tuna!
I do not know how they have come to that figure, but these are very serious matters to be considered in the agreement, because we are here to defend the interest of our country.”
EU Member States have already signed up to a law designed to end overfishing, but they're failing to honour their obligations to enforce this law. This is a disaster for our fish stocks, marine environment, and the fishing communities that rely on them.
We need your help to convince politicians to do the right thing. Will you sign our petition, demanding that The Gambia Government and the Fisheries Ministry Stop Implementation of the Sustainable Fishing Partnership Agreement that the EU signed with The Republic of The Gambia on October 19, 2018.
Please sign our petition today!!!
